Tullamore Show: Entry numbers ‘on par’ with record-breaking 2022

In this article, a spokesperson for Tullamore Show, reports that entry numbers for this year’s event are on par with its record-breaking 2022.

Entries have flooded in from around the country, in all sections.

With overall numbers comparable to 2022, the introduction of the new sheep breeds Lanark and Swaledale, sheep numbers have increased beyond all records with over 920 entries, as have the commercial cattle section for 2023.

We look forward to a super show on Sunday, August 13th, 2023, at Butterfield Estate, Blueball.

Exhibitors and spectators are hungry to return to shows and it is evident with the bulging entries in most sections and huge number of spectators attending shows held so far this show season.

The crème de le crème livestock from the commercial, pedigree, dairy, and sheep categories converge at the Tullamore Show and FBD National Livestock Show, competing for prestigious accolades such as rosettes and gold and silver medals.

This sought-after recognition immediately enhances the worth of their livestock, and the upcoming year of 2023 promises nothing less.
